Totally agree. For a transition year, '71 chock full of legendary shows.

Here's a non-comprehensive list of great '71 performances:

2/18/71, 4/14/71, 4/15/71, 4/28/71, 4/29/71, 8/6/71, 8/14/71, 10/31/71, 11/14/71, 11/15/71, 12/1/71, 12/4/71, 12/5/71, 12/6/71, 12/15/71, 12/31/71

I'm surprised to see 4/14, 4/15 on your list. I don't consider those to be particularly strong performances, and certainly not among the better shows of 1971. Personally, I think 4/12 is a much better performance, in spite of the cuts.

I'd certainly add 7/2 and 11/7, two of the very best from 1971. The list would still not be comprehensive...

4/12 is also a great show. I've never been a big fan of 7/2, the Fillmore West closing show, but perhaps I should give it another listen.

You're definitely not the only one who's less impressed with 7/2/71, but I consider it to be a monumental performance and some others agree (including William Tell). Several dynamite renditions, in my opinion, and one of the best performances of Cryptical> Other One of 1971.

Definitely agree about this show, esp. the Other One - what a monster!

Yeah, yeah, TMNS didn't show up until '75 but I was trying to be clever with the Subject line so bite me.

Have to chime in on the 8/14/71 show. One of the best Lovelight's out there.

How come no love for 11/6/71 and 11/7/71?

12/9/71 is probably my favorite version of Jack Straw (this week anyway)

Well, I did mention that the list was non-comprehensive. Those are fine shows though -- especially 11/7 - wow.
